Synopsis:

Old and out of time, the monstrous architecture of the institution forms a world endlessly growing into corridors, courtyards, fire-escapes and places of worship and discipline.

Moving freely through the building, manipulating his puppets, is an unfeeling intimidating force, a thief who preys upon the inhabitants.

The inmates and their world are completely inseparable.

One inhabitant is a nurse numbed and repressed by a place which, she knows, touches and disfigures everything it contains.

She becomes obsessed with one of the inmates, a lost and blind archivist, impotent amongst his nightmare relics from ancient dead cultures.

In a desperate attempt to form some perfect bond with him she uses the thief as a go-between to lure him into a secret tryst.
